Upcoming Graduate Research Symposium
The DOC Graduate Research Symposium, which provides an opportunity for 50-75 graduate students in organic chemistry to interact with leaders from academia, industry, various funding agencies, and publishers at a single venue will take place at Bryn Mawr College, Bryn Mawr, PA (Thursday, July 28 through Sunday, July 31, 2016). There will be a number of invited speakers from industry and academia, and the invited students will have the opportunity to give an oral communication, or present a poster. Workshops and additional opportunities for round-table discussions will be organized to inform students about opportunities available in the field and to gain important perspectives on their post-graduate school careers.
